    Adhd vs. Autism

    I think this broad spectrum is too much. Look up the symptoms yourself and it needs to be defined. My son has ADHD and it is clear but they say he could have mild autism and thus couldn’t diffidently say he has that too when got evaluated my a well known psychologist . This broad spectrum is wrong and anyone can have signs of this. My child is not a project and shows little signs of this but definitely ADHD and I was diagnosed in the early 80’s with add which they didn’t have the adhd or combined....

    Why I stopped taking Adderall

    A couple of years back I went to the doctor for a check up with more anxiety than normal. When my doctor came in he looked at me with concerning eyes and started to ask me questions. These questions were him probing me and giving me a test for ADD. To make sure he was correct he also had me take an online test where he would read the question and I would answer. I was 21 at the time and it was the first time I was diagnosed with ADD. The medication that was prescribed to me causes a lot more damage....

    Stimulant Equivalent Alternative

    I was recently diagnosed with ADD and my doctor put me on vyvanse to start. After finding that, due to my gastric bypass surgery, I metabolized the medication more rapidly than most. My doctor upped the mgs for the vyvanse and added an adderall IR script. The medications are effective, but I'm wondering if there's some combination of vitamins and supplements that could replace one of my stimulant meds but keep the same level of focus. Open to any and all suggestions :)

    Question - ADHD worse as getting older?

    I'm a 42 year old male. I was diagnosed for ADHD 10 years ago. It cleared up a lot of questions I always had about myself. I proactively studied the disease, I have seen professional help on a monthly basis since diagnosis and I have taken Strattera for 10 years. Over the past few years, it seems that my ADHD symptoms are growing worse. I recently got fired from my investing job. The heads of the group seemed to grow tired of my increased disorganization and my trouble focusing. Has anyone else....
